My son somehow associated Adobe Reader with ALL .exe files. I have removed Adobe reader and the file types return to normal. When I reload Adobe, all of the .exe file extentions launch Adobe Reader and, of course, wont open. When I look in the Change File Types Associations I cannot find the .exe listing to remove the Adobe association. Any ideas on how to switch it back? Thanks.

try System Restore to roll the system back to an earler date where it was working fine.

1. go to Start
- click on All Programs
- scroll up to Accesories
-look for System Tools
- and click on System Restore and choose "Restore my computer to an earlier time"

let us know if it worked

cheers

You will have to change the file view properties so you can see the .exe format.

This must be a contender for thread title of the year. I know it's early days but it'll take some beating. Thanks for giving me a chuckle!

The System Restore will help if you change a setting in windows or a program and your computer is not working or you install new drivers and it is not working but the System Restore will not help if you install a program or get malware.Also the System Restore will not delete any thing you have done on the computer to the restore point like add new word doc or pictures on the computer and sound files.:eek:
